BOTANY is a little shop on Chatsworth Road, Hackney. It is also near the hospital where I have to visit for my dreaded regular check-ups. 

These days BOTANY has become more than just another shop to me, for passing through its doors inspires me to abandon my prickly mood outside and I feel right again. Its a nice place to reset my mind after each hospital visit. There is a good air here. It is a nice place to just breathe in the good vibes proliferated from Angela’s creativity and the  thoughtfulness shown in her carefully selected and lovingly tended for plants. I think she’s created a moment of magic here, and rather selfishly, I am so glad that it is where it is.

BOTANY is an independent lifestyle shop founded and run by Angela Maynard. In her own words BOTANY is;

“Inspired by nature & simple living…..Here you’ll find a carefully curated selection of ethically sourced hand-crafted homewares, organic skincare products, stationery, paper goods and other objects, alongside an ever-changing abundance of indoor plants life, from unusual succulents, cacti and other house plants to a weekly selection of cut and wild flowers.”
